Biku is the kind of hidden gem that you kind of want to keep a secret because it’s just that good. Unfortunately for you, that is impossible since Biku has gained massive popularity among local residents and visiting travellers alike, and it’s not hard to see why. Coming in to Biku it doesn’t feel like an impersonal restaurant, instead it exudes a warm and homey feeling, as if you’re visiting your grandmother’s house.
Biku is situated in a repurposed 150-year-old teak joglo house – a traditional house from East Java, exuding a charming, quaint feeling, like you’ve been there before and you want to stay longer. Guests can find cute homewares and various books for sale at Biku, making it more than just a restaurant; it’s where you can lose track of time over a good read and great bites.
Upon the topic of Biku, most long-time fans would associate the café with its high tea selection. Crafted by Biku’s own tea master Tjok Gde Kerthyasa, Biku offers a range of afternoon teas – from the traditional afternoon tea, to Asian High Tea for two and Children’s Tea Time. If you want a perky afternoon tea, choose the Sparkling Afternoon Tea package that includes a glass of Champagne.
When it comes to the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, Biku seamlessly combines the best Indonesian and western comfort foods, served in hearty portions that, most importantly, taste divine. That said, one thing you should not miss when visiting Biku: losing yourself in Biku’s cake selection, from pavlova to the best carrot cake on the island we dare say.
